No surprise here as Last Airbender leads the Razzie nominations

01.24.2011

THE LAST AIRBENDER was surely one of the worst movies I saw last year so it's no surprise that M. Night Shyamalan's latest disaster has topped the nominations for the 2010 Razzie Awards. AIRBENDER racked up 9 total nominations, tying it with THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE for the most nominations. I'll never fully understand the Razzies (how can an actor be nominated for performances in two separate films?) but they seemed to have descended into some weird kind of camp. A new category this year is WORST EYE-GOUGING MIS-USE Of 3-D (hardy-har) and "Megan Fox's Accent" is part of the WORST SCREEN COUPLE category (wokka-wokka). The Razzies would probably be more entertaining if they at least pretended to take themselves seriously instead of sporting jokes lamer than the ones in the movies they're knocking. That said, they did get a few things right like Rob Schneider getting a Worst Supporting Actor nomination for GROWN UPS. The awards themselves will be handed out on Saturday, February 26 and you never know who'll show up in person to pick up their award.

What the $hit is Sylvester Stallone / THE EXPENDABLES doing on that list. It wasn't that bad. Infact after a second watching I liked it more. Also what is Clash of the Titans doing on there worst sequel, I can't help it 90% of everyone who went to go see it saw it in that horrible 3d transfer. For those smart 10% (me) to see it at home on DVD, I and many of my friends thought was enjoyable on every level. I can see it being the winner of the insult 3D award.

Hell, I have more respect for The Razzies than I do the Oscars at this point. The Oscars are a PR waste of time and don't define merit any more at all. Everyone listed on The Razzies deserve the scorn.

How is it everyone is wanting to get on their knees and blow Stallone for the shocking piece of crap that was The Expendables? There was no character development at all and near the end the fast editing was so bad I had a hard time figuring out who was fighting who, it was like a fucking Transformers movie only with old dudes on Steroids.

I was all about the hype, but the movie sucked. Sorry fanboys. He deserves the nomination.

But Dev Patel doesn't.

The Razzies are a joke. They always have been and always will be. Those who are behind the idiocy have zero credibility and are merely a bunch of disgruntled never-wills who, for some reason, have been latched onto Stallone since the early to mid 80s like a bunch of parasites. They are running on inferior intellect, incredibly limited knowledge of cinema and virtually no comprehension of what a performance is (they, like so many morons, think that Rocky Balboa is merely the result of Stallone

They take an exaggerated caricature of Rocky and apply it to Stallone as a person and to all of his performances.

Jessical Alba got thrashed there. She is indeed horrible in all those films. It's sad that she does make or break movies for me personally (Machete and FOckers)

I loved The Expendables

But I'm glad to see The Last Airbender leading the noms. It's pretty much the definition of incompetent filmmaking.

Anybody who has done a little research on their past nominations/wins should know the folks at the Razzies have some kind of agenda against Stallone, so I'm actually surprised they didn't go overboard and nominate The Expendables for more categories. Just goes to show you can do a lot worse than Stallone, huh? Either way the Razzies are stupid.

Im glad to see Stallone on that list. His directing inabilities are what made The Expandables boring. A better director could have made it a better and funer film out of that cast.

DUURRRRRRRRRRR, I'm Skellington, a hipster fruitcake who listens to indie/emo bands who ripped off the post-punk era bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s. I think everything sucks and have no concept of subtext. Duuuurrrrrrrrrr Scott Pilgrim all the way, dude. My hate for Stallone is merely a charade to cover up my unwanted feelings of passion and intimacy for him.

Hahaha! Thanks fanboy, you made my day.
Where the fuck do you come from anyways ? Havent I the right to my own opinion ? Just because you jerk off to The Expandables, it doesnt mean we all have to love that piece of crap.

P.S. Im 30, I dont care about emo bands, I dont even understand where that comes from and Scott Pilgrim was, well, alright.

Edit: Oh, must be my name that led you to believe I liked emo stuff, well, I loved Nightmare Before Christmas before those emo kids even started

Did they really just claim he was a horrible director?? They should watch the behind the scenes documentary on the blu-ray... That nomination is very random to me.

Too bad about Airbender...

...because the actual animated show was really (really) well written, funny, sad, consistent, and told the whole story beginning to end.

The movie version (covering 1/3 of the animated series) was atrocious, but mostly from the standpoint of actually changing the pronunciations of the names, for no reason whatsoever! Oh, and the acting sucked too.

As bad as The Last Airbender was it is unfair to highlight Dev Patel with a nomination when in fact I think he was the only one in the cast who made a charcter that has emotions.

And M. Night Shyamalan in his worst days can not reach the lowest level achieved by Friedberg & Seltzer. They are the reasons why we need and award show like the Razzies.

So basically every category is between the same 5 or 6 movies. These awards are a joke and pathetic.
